Gx20 & 16-45

Been looking into a move from Olympus to Pentax but can't really afford the £1000 for the K7 body, that and I actually found it quite small when I tried it today, I have large hands so really need something which is physically a bit bigger.
Have been offered a brand new Samsung GX20 with Samsung 16-45 lens for £550 does this seem a good deal?

Hi again Chris.
Couldn't tell if it's a good deal or not considering the currency differences and price ranges overseas, but from the exchange rate itself it seems on the high side for price. Of course, I'd be comparing with US prices, which would be unfair.

Hi Chris, I picked up a nib GX20 from Fotojoker in Poland for about 2499 pln or 542 (British pounds) with the kit lens. If the camera and the lens are like nib condition it's not a bad deal considering the 16-45 is a decent step up from the kit lens :-) I hope that helps! I picked up a GX20 because of the price difference and the lack of Pentax support in Poland (Samsung isn't better, but they were on sale)
